Viet Nam News HCM CITY — With HCM City’s metro line No 1 from Bến Thành to Suối Tiên suffering from major cost overruns, and the National Assembly yet to sanction the additional funding, the city government has said it will try and provide the required funds to finish the work by 2020, the extended deadline. With the deadline deferred twice from 2015 and 2018, the expected cost now is VNĐ30 trillion (US$1.34 billion) more than originally budgeted, but the National Assembly has yet to consider this and the Ministry of Planning and Investment has not granted funds from ODA loans either. Already since 2016 the city has paid nearly VNĐ3.3 trillion ($147 million) from its coffers. “We have already apprised the Government about the cost overrun and we are waiting for approval,” Trần Vĩnh Tuyến, deputy chairman of the city People’s Committee, was quoted as saying by Thanh Niên (Young People) newspaper. He … [Read more...] about HCMC metro over budget as NA provides no extra funds

PUBLISHED: 19:00 24 August 2018 Paul Geater Broomhill pool should be open again in late 2020. Picture: KLH Architects Archant Ipswich council is set to pledge a further £500,000 to the Broomhill Pool redevelopment project in a bid to ensure it can go ahead as planned next year. The restoration was granted £3.4m of Heritage Lottery Fund cash last December when the cost of restoring the pool and turning the area into a all-year sports and community centre was put at £6.5m. However inflation in the construction industry has pushed the cost up by £750,000 – potentially threatening the project that would be completed by leisure company Fusion Lifestyle with backing from the council which owns the Broomhill site.The borough had pledged £1m to go towards the legislation – an offer made in 2005. Now it has increased that pledge by £500,000 which reflects the effect of inflation over the last 13 years.That still leaves a … [Read more...] about Watch: Broomhill’s restoration set to be secured by extra £500,000 from Ipswich council

In early June I took my rescued dog Rosa on holiday for the first time, well not in this country anyway! After initially being a little apprehensive about how everything was going to work out (will I get all the documents needed in time, could she potentially overheat on the ferry crossing, will we run out of gravy bones, the list goes on..), but after a bit of preparation the 10-day driving trip to France worked out amazingly. In fact it went even better than that, the famously laid-back lifestyle in France worked its magic on my otherwise slightly over excitable dog, the sun shone, the vineyards glistened, the dog friendly hotels were extremely welcoming to both of us and we both found it hard to prise ourselves away from the truly beautiful country. Although when researching for the trip I found that although here in the UK we’re most definitely a nation of dog lovers (with a quarter of British households now owning dogs), only 5% of these households take advantage of the … [Read more...] about How to travel to Europe with a dog – a complete guide!
Thu Hang speaks confidently about the upcoming soccer match of the day. Then she turns to the real star of the show, Molly the seal, to predict its outcome. Molly the seal is an old hand at this. She looks at the three baskets placed in front of her. The one in the middle has a white flag and the flanking baskets carry the flags of the teams playing the match. Using her divining power, the seal seals the deal by throwing a ball into one of the three baskets. The “Russian Prophet” show, aired on pay TV channel K+ Sports News, has attracted many viewers. The sexy host is one of the attractions of the show, because she wears a bikini and a see-through white cloth that accentuates her curves. However, it was not long before the skimpy nature of Hang’s outfit became controversial. The show is streamed live on the TV channel's Facebook page, and posts with Hang wearing bikinis last week received much more interactions than those with her in normal coach outfits. Views for … [Read more...] about Football fans divided as MC in bikini ‘seals’ World Cup spot in Vietnam
